I Love The South

I just went out to get the mail and I noticed that my daffodils are coming up! I'm sure we'll get another cold snap, maybe two more, but with the daffodils and blossoms coming out on the forsythia and pink blossoms on some trees that someone more botanically astute than I could probably identify, I think it's safe to say that springtime is on its way.

Aaaaahhhh.

In Chicago it is currently a wopping 12 degrees F. Pour more salt in my wounds, why don't you! The plows haven't poured enough!

In Michigan it's the same as Chicago 15F, and wind is blowing.... brrrrr. Spring is at least 10 more weeks away.

Reading your post reminded me of my vacations in the South Carolina area and made me want to return. I once long-distance dated a woman from Columbia, by flying down once a month, but I've especially enjoyed three trips to Charleston and two trips to Hilton Head Island over the years. Twice I considered moving to Charleston--it is so beautiful, the weather is so pleasant, and visually it's almost like entering a time-machine to the 19th century-- but the first time the job I was offered paid too little, and the second time my wife said, and I finally agreed, that the smell from the Paper Mill as well as our likely lower salaries than our New York ones, ruled it out. Are you in Charleston and do you ever notice the Paper Mill scent?

I don't know why I thought you were from Charleston or even SC, but I see you are from Georgia. I have found Savannah and Atlanta very interesting and enjoyable too.

The pink ones are redbuds. Oh how I love them. Their emergence always makes me feel hopeful, and they are my signal to start planning my spring planting.

Kelly--thank you my dear! I knew you'd know. The redbuds around the pond in our neighborhood are really pretty.
